Hollingbourne is a historic village noted for its superb landscape where ancient buildings add to the rural heritage. Springs from the North Downs give rise to tributaries that join the River Len; these springs feed mill streams and ponds, and their neighbouring meadowland and woods, all of which have ensured Hollingbourne’s historic prosperity.
The Hollingbourne War Memorial lists the names of 37 men from Hollingbourne who died for their country in World War I and the names of 12 men and 1 woman from Hollingbourne who died in World War II. Where possible links have been made to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website which provides more information.
